  • Condemning Harvey, Still Clinging to Bill and Teddy

    The gall of the Dems is unmitigated. Amidst the flurry of demands that Harvey Weinstein be extinguished from the liberal memory, Democrats keep turning up at institutions and award ceremonies named after serial exploiters of women. The other day John Kerry took a break from the denunciations of the bloated mogul to pick up an honor from the “Edward Kennedy Institute.” Barack Obama sent his fraternal greetings to the august gathering. Needless to say, memories of Teddy Kennedy’s exploitation of waitresses and campaign volunteers didn’t figure into the high proceedings. Teddy had the seduction techniques of Harvey Weinstein down pat,...

    Hillary Clinton hatched up a dirty tricks campaign portraying “disloyal” Caroline Kennedy as an adulteress, according to claims in a bombshell new report. The notoriously ruthless former Secretary of State, 69, allegedly decided to take “revenge” on JFK’s daughter after she refused to back her 2008 campaign for the White House and instead endorsed Barack Obama. The plot – reportedly orchestrated by Hillary’s top henchman, Clinton Foundation adviser Sidney Blumenthal – centered on derailing Caroline’s own political ambitions by leaking cheating rumors to the media. “Bill Clinton was always loyal to the Kennedy’s. They were his role models and heroes,”...

    Joe Kennedy may not be running for president, but he sure talks like he is. The 37-year-old (Oct. 4), red-headed congressman from Brookline, heir apparent to the thinning Kennedy political dynasty, is quickly emerging as a player in a Democrat Party bereft of leaders. He recently gave a rip-roaring speech in Texas that tore into President Donald Trump and had Texas Democrats clamoring for more. President Trump, the young congressman said, was nothing more than “an amateur executive with a thick ego and a thin skin.” The country is facing perilous times, Kennedy, in highly charged rhetoric, said

    Variety ^ | 9/12/17 | Gleiberman
    Over the years, a great many actors have taken a turn at playing one of the Kennedy brothers (in made-for-TV movies, on “Saturday Night Live,” in big-screen historical dramas). The vast majority of these performances have been mediocre, a handful have been quite good, and a few have been memorable — like Bruce Greenwood’s cuttingly terse and commanding JFK in the Cuban Missile Crisis drama “Thirteen Days,” or Peter Sarsgaard’s tender and battle-scarred Robert F. Kennedy in “Jackie.” To that short list of singular and superb Kennedy performances, we can now add the Australian actor Jason Clarke’s portrayal of Edward...

    I paid no attention to the fact that Hollywood was producing a biopic of Ted Kennedy’s famous “accident” at Chappaquiddick in 1969, and would have assumed that it was a typical gauzy pro-Kennedy puff piece if I had known. But Variety magazine, the main trade journal of Hollywood, offers a review that not only says that the forthcoming movie Chappaquiddick is suitably harsh on Teddy, but that he—and the Kennedy reputation—deserve it: The film says that what happened at Chappaquiddick was even worse than we think. Kopechne’s body was found in a position that implied that she was struggling to...

    It's an old-fashioned summer on Cape Cod: sharks on the prowl, beaches closed and "glassy-eyed" Kennedys brawling with cops, under arrest and in protective custody. This time it was Max Kennedy, age 52, and his pouty 22-year-old daughter, Caroline Rose. You've heard of Bring Your Daughter to Work Day? For the Kennedys last weekend, it was Bring Your Daughter to Jail Night. [Snip] But look on the bright side of this Kennedy keg party. No women were raped, drowned, crippled or beaten to death with a golf club. There were no Skakels lurking in a tree outside, and no...

    Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound. [Snip] The arrests come after a brush with the law for another of RFK’s grandchildren, Conor Kennedy, who was also charged...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Carrie Fisher, speaking of sexual harassment charges, or rather the lack of them in this case. There's an amusing anecdote out there, Carrie Fisher's latest autobiography. She's the daughter, by the way, of the movie star Debbie Reynolds. I met Debbie Reynolds once at a House Clinic event. She was the entertainer. She's hilarious. I had forgotten. She is a hilarious comedienne, Debbie Reynolds. That's Carrie Fisher's mom, and Carrie Fisher played Princess Leia in the first Star Wars flick. That was before calling someone princess was sexist. Do you believe Cain had to apologize for calling...

    Forget the Better Deal. What the Democrats need is a better candidate. Besides, the new slogan of the ailing Democrat Party -- A Better Deal -- is about as old and tired as FDR's New Deal or Harry Truman's Fair Deal. Even A New Spiel would have been better. However, it is what you get when you hire political consultants to do your thinking for you

    In their barracks at the military academy an hour north of New York City, cadets huddled around radios each night to learn if Armageddon was at hand. On Oct. 22, they listened intently as President John F. Kennedy delivered a stern address on the rapidly spiraling crisis. “It shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack by the Soviet Union on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Soviet Union,” Kennedy warned. Among the cadets at the academy in that fraught,...

    On Tuesday, New York magazine published an essay by a 24-year-old law student who recently paddleboarded around Manhattan for the first time. “I signed up for the race because I thought it sounded cool,” writes our participant. “Of course, when I asked around, everyone said it was really hard and I’d better start training.” The smugness, the entitlement, the painfully obvious observation — one might wonder: Who cares? Until you look at the byline and realize: Oh, of course. Another Kennedy foisted upon us. Our diarist is none other than Jack Schlossberg, grandson of JFK, son of Caroline, accomplishment-free save...

    Nearly 4,000 records associated with investigations into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy have been released by the National Archives, ABC News reports. Although most of the material had previously been released with parts redacted, there are 441 that have never before been made public. In the materials, there are reportedly 17 recordings of interviews with former KGB agent Yuri Nosenko, who defected in 1964 and told authorities he was in charge of Lee Harvey Oswald’s KGB file while Oswald was in the Soviet Union. There are also details relating to the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., who...

    During President Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign for re-election, several individuals allegedly worked on behalf of the Chinese government to influence the presidential election in favor of Clinton. "Chinagate" began when the Los Angeles Times reported, a couple months before the '96 election, the following: "The Democratic National Committee has returned a $250,000 contribution from a recently established subsidiary of a South Korean electronics company because it violated a ban on donations from foreign nationals in U.S. elections, a party spokesman said Friday. ... "David Eichenbaum, DNC communications director ... said that the DNC fund-raiser who was responsible for the contribution...

    Shortly after leaving a party on Chappaquiddick Island, Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy of Massachusetts drives an Oldsmobile off a wooden bridge into a tide-swept pond. Kennedy escaped the submerged car, but his passenger, 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne, did not. The senator did not report the fatal car accident for 10 hours. ---SNIP--- Kennedy escaped the car and then dove down in an attempt to retrieve Kopechne from the sunken Oldsmobile. Failing, he stumbled back to the cottage, where he enlisted Gargan and another friend in a second attempt to save Kopechne. The three men were unsuccessful; her body was not...

    As longtime readers of American Thinker know, I’ve here several times reported the story of Ted Kennedy’s undisclosed outreach and offer to the Kremlin, as revealed in a remarkable May 14, 1983 memo from KGB head Victor Chebrikov to his boss, the odious Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov, designated with the highest classification. The document was found in the Central Committee archives and first reported in a February 2, 1992 article in the London Times. I was the first to break the document in full via both the original Russian and an English translation, which I printed in books published...

    The subject head of the document, carried under the words, “Special Importance,” read: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary of the Communist Party Y. V. Andropov.” According to the memo, Senator Kennedy was “very troubled” by U.S.-Soviet relations, which Kennedy attributed not to the murderous tyrant running the USSR but to President Reagan. The problem was Reagan’s “belligerence,” said the memo, and made worse by Reagan’s stubbornness. “According to Kennedy,” reported Chebrikov, “the current threat is due to the President’s refusal to engage any modification to his politics.” That refusal, said the memo, was exacerbated by Reagan’s political...

    In a story that was ostensibly about new Supreme Court Justice Neil M. Gorsuch's voting record, NPR legal affairs reporter Nina Totenberg dropped this tantalizing piece of news about Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's potential retirement: "Kennedy may also have thought it best to ensure that there is a full complement of nine justices for at least a year. He could even have been put off by President Trump's tweets about the judiciary. But it is unlikely that Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency. While he long ago hired his law clerks...

    Big news hiding in Nina Totenberg’s story on Justice Gorsuch voting 100% with Justice Thomas: But it is unlikely that Kennedy will remain on the court for the full four years of the Trump presidency. While he long ago hired his law clerks for the coming term, he has not done so for the following term (beginning Oct. 2018), and has let applicants for those positions know he is considering retirement. Kennedy’s position on the court is more than consequential. In the most hotly contested and closely divided cases, his vote often decides the outcome. With every passing day, it...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg declined to announce her retirement, once again, on the last day of the session on Monday. Also, Justice Anthony Kennedy declined to his announce his retirement, though he could do so over the summer. The 84-year-old Ginsburg — the “Notorious R.B.G.,” to her fans — has been on the Court since 1993, when she was appointed by President Bill Clinton. Since then, she has been a reliable liberal vote for 24 years....
